Nan was a life-long friend.  We never lost contact after high school.

On the times we'd be able to get together for a chat, on parting we'd always say we were looking forward to the day when we might be in some assisted-living facility or 'retirement home' just down the hall from each other, when we'd be able to talk to our hearts' content.

In the last call I had from her in December 2020, she observed, "They don't ask us if we want to grow old.  They don't invite us."

Very shortly thereafter she was in a memory care facility.

Nan was blessed with a most caring family.

She was a grace-filled---gracious and graceful, person.

Her contributions to her students and educational colleagues were remarkable.

We never know how our lives will unfold.

Nan and I both had moms who lived into their mid-90's.

So, rest in peace, dear Nan.  We'll be honoring the sweet memory of you, when we seize the day.

Nan was such a special person to me. She and Ann Norcross were my best friends at Highlands. I always wanted to go to Tech and room with her but our paths diverged after high school. I regret the time we didn't get to spend together and especially that last meeting that we never got to have. Nan was smart and funny but mainly always always kind and thoughtful.I will miss her greatly. Rest In Peace dear Nan.

I do not remember everybody in our class at Highlands, but I remember Nan.  We worked together on the Tartan staff.  She was a very kindhearted and considerate person.  I last saw her in 2014 when a group of ex-Tartan staff members had an impromptu getogether at MacArthur Park when our class had its 50th reunion. She was very proud of her work as an educator.  I think she had retired as a principal of an elementary school.  She left us too early.  Thank you, Nan, for all you did to make us better.  Bobby

I have such fond memories of Nan! I remember her kind, caring, and upbeat personality and her diligence and commitment to the activities in which she participated during our high school years. She will be deeply missed by her family and friends. My heartfelt condolences to her family,

Life can seem so unfair.  Nan and I had several classes together, and I was always impressed with her kindness and sincerity toward everyone.  After high school we chose different paths and I regret not having sayed in touch.  Her passing was a shock and she will  be missed.  My sincere condolences to her family.
